About Us

Where We Started

La Vie Cosplay has extensive experience in professional performance as well as craftsmanship and competition, earning multiple Best in Shows and other awards including the 2022 USA representatives for the International Cosplay League in Spain.

Where We’re Going

LVC takes pride in their entertainment content and hosting, including the hit comedy podcast, Shenanigans Cosplayers Say (formerly Sh*t Cosplayers Say). Elle & Ash use their 20 years of experience in the cosplay and convention community to dive deep into the hard questions, create shenanigans, and examine the joy in their hobbies.

Our Vision

La Vie Cosplay’s vision is to support the new generation, not take themselves too seriously, and put the “play” back in cosplay.


Join Elle and Ash of La Vie Cosplay on this comedy podcast in the chaos of fandom, crafting, mental health, competing and the overall adventure that is con-going life. You won’t believe what some people say; or what people think they can attach to their bodies with hot glue. Rated PG-13.
